Call me old fashion but I love it when brides still incorporate “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” in their wedding day. I love seeing the family jewels as something old, the sister’s earrings as something borrowed and the new necklace — gift from the groom — as something new. But I’ve noticed that many times brides draw a blank when it comes to finding something blue.
How to incorporate something blue on your wedding day
Well I’m here to let you in on some of the coolest ways of incorporating something blue into your wedding day.
- We spend so much time picking out the best flowers for the bouquet. How cool would it be if you would include a stem of a light blue wildflower in the bouquet. A blue hibiscus flower tucked in the back would be super cool.
- My favorite wedding shoe designer Betsey Johnson helps you out. I call them the wedding version of Louboutins. The sole of the shoe is the prettiest blue! Isn’t that just so beautiful?
- If you’re into DIY you can easily sew your wedding date into the inner lining of your wedding dress.
- If you don’t mind sharing the something blue, have the groom’s suit be blue on the inside. I will one day let you in on my thoughts about the blue suits in general.
- Lastly, if you like the color blue, incorporate it into your wedding theme. I am dying to photograph a wedding where dusty blue, turquoise blue, or pale blue are the wedding colors. Such a beautiful color scheme!
That is it, for now. What other something blue ideas do you have? Also, I’m always wondering, what is your something borrowed? I’d love to know more. Let me know in the comments.
